WHEATON, Illinois — Du Page County Fairgrounds, is where the “Haunted Fleas” will gather again for Zurko Promotions’ Annual “Haunted Halloween Flea Market,” Saturday, October 26, from 3 p.m. to midnight.
Zombies, ghosts, goblins and witches beware! Come in costume for the Goblins’ Ball featuring live music and the “Weird & Wonderful” costume judging contest.
A special guest appearance by “Deep Roy,” who played Droopy McCool in “Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.” He also played an Ewok on Endor and sometimes played R2-D2. In the 2005 film version of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” he was digitally replicated to portray all the Oompa-Loompas. He also plays the alien Keenser in the 2009 film “Star Trek.”
To sci-fi fans, Roy is best known for his role as Mr. Sin in the Doctor Who serial Talons of Weng-Chiang, as well as the Posicarian delegate in the later serial Mindwarp. He is the only actor to appear in the Star Wars, Star Trek and Doctor Who franchises.

There will be thousands of haunted treasures for sale; as vendors will bring everything from Halloween collectibles, antiques, bargains, old stuff, close-outs, crafts, and much more.
Vintage hearses will be on display, as this appears to be a “spook-tacular” with fun for the entire family. Bring flashlights, come in costume, and hunt for bargains, but dress warm because dealers will be indoors and outdoors, in sheds and open-air with tents. Event is held “rain or moon-shine.”
Show hours are 3 p.m. to midnight, and children aged 12 and under are free; located at the Du Page County Fairgrounds (County Farm & Manchester), in Wheaton, Illinois, on Saturday, Oct. 26.
